In MetaTexis each segment is presented in aspecial box, and the translation can be entered inanother box right below the source text.
  9. 9. Translation Unit2- Translation Unit:The translation of each segment is saved togetherwith the source text. Source text and translation willalways be treated and presented as a translationunit (TU). You can return to a segment at any timeto check the translation. There are special functionswhich help to navigate through the text and to findsegments which need to be translated or revised(quality control).
  10. 10. Translation Memory3- Translation Memory (TM):The main function of a CAT tool is to save thetranslation units in a database, called translationmemory (TM), so that they can be re-used for anyother text, or even in the same text.

This saves a lot of time and effortand helps to make a coherent and consistenttranslation.
